Ministerial Standing Form
Dear Clergy Colleagues,
Happy New Year, and grace and peace to you all. As we move into 2023 we are reaching out to ask for your partnership in helping our region compete its responsibility for reviewing and certifying the standing of all ordained ministers, commissioned ministers, and ordained ministerial partners serving in the Christian Church in Ohio. The completion of such is required of all clergy for the renewal of ministerial standing.
Additionally, by returning the Request for Standing form you enable the Commission on Ministry to be better acquainted with you, your ministry, and to keep regional records updated. Your standing request submissions will be read prayerfully, confidentially, and with the utmost respect by the members of the Standing Team of the Ohio Commission on Ministry. By this review process, when your standing is certified for 2023, your name and address are listed in the Ministers Directory portion of the Annual Yearbook and Directory of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ.)
The deadline for completing the 2023 Request for Standing
is Monday, January 30th.
Please be sure to also review the "My Ministerial Code of Ethics” PDF. As part of the 2023 renewal process, all ministers are to read this document and affirm its contents. Your willingness to comply with the Code of Ethics will be indicated by your answer to a specific statement in the Standing Form.
LOGIN & PASSWORD INSTRUCTIONS
The Standing Form includes an individual "Login" and Password" (created by you) and offers the ability for you to manage personal updates—such as address changes, cell phone, email, etc.—at any time. Additionally, once you have completed the 2023 Request for Standing form information will be saved and available for resubmitting the Request for Standing form for following years to come.
After clicking on one of the Request for Standing links at the bottom of the page, you will notice the * symbols by the fields where information is required. This information must be filled out before you can move to the next page. Note: Under the "e-mail address" there is a "Password" required field. If you have completed this online form in the past, you will need to enter the email address and password you have used before. If you have not, then it will ask you to create a password.

Commission on Ministry Team 3 Chair
